Did you know that hearing loss is not just about missing out on conversation? It can also lead to social isolation, depression, economic challenges, and even cognitive decline.

However, it doesn’t have to be: early diagnosis is key to creating a positive patient outcome. Hearing Diagnostics Ltd is a health-tech startup developing novel hearing screening technology with the vision of changing lives for individuals with hearing loss.

Join Dr. Eunice Ibala Phd. a biomedical engineer specialising in medical device development, to learn about the importance of early detection and management of hearing loss.

You will discover how a community-focused approach makes screening more accessible than ever.
